The "five" in Five At Peace Massage Studio represents the five senses, each of which is systematically awakened during the spa's sumptuous facial, massage, and body treatments. The sounds of classical music, rhythmic beats, and crashing waves suffuse the treatment rooms and lobby with their calming, mesmeric influence, encouraging clients to begin the relaxation process like a starting gun loaded with aromatherapeutic blanks. A complimentary glass of tea, coffee, or wine fills the nose and taste buds as the liquids energize and relax in preparation for the spa pampering ahead. As an aesthetician performs decadent coffee- or chocolate-infused body treatments, clients breathe in the sweet and smoky aromas and unspool tension while their skin is exfoliated and plumped with moisture. Exotic massages spur achy muscles toward healing, including sports-specific therapies and a Thai herbal compress, during which the massage therapist applies cloth soaked in a warm herbal mixture to the joints to help boost mobility by easing swelling and loosening too-tight connective tissue. Aestheticians turn their healing hands to the face, where rhythmic cleansing can work to purge congested skin during the detoxifying facial, or bring back a youthful glow during treatments such as the caviar-and-pearl facial, a favorite with clients showing signs of aging or turning into a sea lion.
Synthesis Spa at Atlantis's professional aestheticians coax glowing skin to the surface with modern microdermabrasion treatments and Italian skincare products. During each approximately 45-minute session, a certified skinsmith utilizes an ultra-fine spray of medical-grade crystals and vacuum pressure to gently remove the face's oppressive outer skin cells, heralding a new age of pore democracy. The noninvasive, nonsurgical procedure jump-starts sluggish blood flow, resurfaces bumpy dermal highways, and helps undo Father Time's handiwork by fading fine lines, age spots, and scars. Microdermabrasion results in no downtime, though skull-jackets may appear rosy post-procedure. Synthesis Spa at Atlantis's skin experts recommend eight treatments for an epidermis that's as soft and alluring as a bunny in a Ferrari. The included spa fee of $25 entitles Groupon holders to use the entire facility.
Essential Massage's licensed therapists treat clients with a variety of massage treatments to promote wellness and better health. They soothe knotted muscles with high-pressure and hot-stone massages, and they marry techniques from two modalities to create optimum relaxation during the combination massage. Their range-of-motion treatments release joint restriction and increase flexibility, and their Revitalize Five treatment works to exfoliate the back while invigorating hands and feet.
When it comes to personnel, Wellness Works has holistic care covered. Its staff includes licensed massage therapists Paul Youngquist and Heidi Scott, certified life coach Janet Archer, and holistic aesthetician Sharon Slingerland. Together, they perform an array of relaxing services, including massages, meditation sessions, and organic facials. Clients who really want to retreat can sign up for a one-hour raindrop therapy session, during which the technician drops essential oils on the back to help evict toxins.
